30 U.S. troops killed in helicopter crash

Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as seven Afghan commandos, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war.

The downing was a stinging blow to the lauded, tight-knit SEAL Team 6, months after its crowning achievement. It was also a heavy setback for the U.S.-led coalition as it begins to draw down thousands of combat troops fighting what has become an increasingly costly and unpopular war.

None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit. Their deployment in the raid in which the helicopter crashed would suggest that the target was a high-ranking insurgent figure. - Yahoo News

Mercy Johnson is distraught, sad and thinking of calling off the wedding - Close friends

The report below was sent to me via email by someone very close to Mercy Johnson. They asked me to share it on my blog. Read...
It is a known fact by now that there are issues on the forthcoming wedding of star actress Mercy Johnson. The man she plans to marry unknowing to her has a wife and two children. For the record, reliable sources close to mercy inform that Prince Odianose Okogie lied to Mercy that what she did with Lovely was a fake marriage for paper purposes and that he only had one child not two from Lovely.
Now events has revealed that all he told Mercy was a blatant lie. Because if the marriage was fake, why was he filing for divorce and on the divorce matter, it is so unfortunate that it was early this morning (Saturday) that Mercy got to know that there is a divorce case in a court of Law in Nigeria and that was after www.lindaikeji.blogspot.com had updated an earlier story it posted.

Update: Fresh Press Release on Mercy Johnson's Wedding

Lovely claims this was their wedding in '06
Another statement from Mercy Johnson's publicist...
Yesterday, fresh facts and evidences about the marital status of Mercy Johnson’s fiancé were made available. These facts were sensitive and disheartening.
For the record, Mercy was not aware of most of these facts and is presently considering them. She will communicate her decisions in a matter of days.
Samuel Olatunji, For: Bigsam Media.
Meanwhile, Lovely has been reading your comments, and in particular interest to her were comments where people said she's been separated from Prince for over three years. She said it's not true...and sent me pictures she says proves it. Continue...

Exclusive: "Mercy Johnson is about to marry my husband" - Lovely Okojie

According to Lovely, this was their wedding day in '06
Prince and the two kids
Dear Linda,

My name is Lovely Okojie, legal wife of Prince Odianosen Okojie, the man Mercy Johnson is set to wed in a few weeks. I was refered to you to help me share my story after all else had failed to stop another woman from breaking my home. I used to have a sweet home but now Mercy Johnson is trying to destroy it. I've not been able to stop crying or sleep well for the past few months. I'm appealing to the world and whoever knows her to please tell her to leave my husband alone. I'm married to this man and there has never been any divorced paper signed. We are still legally married, he's the love of my life and the father of my two lovely kids.

We got married back in 2006 in Regio-Emilia, Italy, attached are pictures of the wedding. At the moment, he's busy in Nigeria planning to wed Mercy Johnson, abandoning me and our children. Fellow women is this fair? So with all the single guys out there,  Mercy could not find her self one. How can a woman not care that she's destroying the home of another woman, all in the name of getting married desperately.

I'm in terrible pains. What do I tell my children?

After receiving this mail a few days ago and speaking extensively with Lovely and a few of her friends to authenticate the letter, I reached out to Mercy via her PR agency. They promised to issue me a statement, which they did this evening. Read the statement and view more pics after the cut...(BTW, Lovely is based in Canada and she claims that when she initially confronted her husband about Mercy, he denied any affair and said they were just business partners)

J. Martins reacts to gay rumours

If you missed the gay story, read it here. J. Martins tells Rasheed Abubakar of Encomium magazine he is not gay.
I was in Abuja when I started receiving calls about the story and I was asked to buy the paper. I bought the paper and in black and white, they wrote that J. Martins is a homosexual. I started laughing and then entered my hotel room. I was naked looking at myself in the mirror, maybe I could see where the homo is. Me? Homosexual? From where? How? (laughs). It was very funny to me, you know it's one of the things you face as an entertainer.

How is it possible that Kaffy Dancequeen is pregnant?

In case you don't know who she is, Kafayat Shafau propularly known as Kaffy is the number one dancer/choreographer in Nigeria. She's said to be engaged to Joseph Ameh, a band member of P-Square and they are planning a wedding in October. Kaffy is allegedly pregnant.

She supposedly said this to City People in an interview last week. "I wasn't surprised when I found out I was pregnant. We were not avoiding having a baby. We were into the relationship together, we were totally into each other, so we were prepared for whatever. I am four months pregnant now, going to five months."

she's almost five months pregnant? I'm quite shocked by this  because I saw her at the P-Square concert where she was the lead dancer and she didn't look pregnant to me. She wore very tight clothes, her mid section was exposed at some point, she was flipping on stage, jumping, dancing very energetically for nearly three hours...how can a pregnant woman do all that? Wó Kaffy, you are joking jor! Except you are superwoman.
